Comparisons and Conclusions

Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the earlier arguments and returns to the different models of regulation set out in Chapter 1, emphasizing the mix of different models to be found in the work of each regulator. It discusses the complex and changing concept of regulatory independence from government. Comparative material from the USA and from France is used to illustrate the relative nature of this independence and to show the importance of social regulation, public service, and sustainability. The role of deliberation and reference up of decisions to government are discussed as means for resolving conflicts between different regulatory principles.

Keywords: regulation; USA; France; public service; independence
